I am, among other things, a fan of music, and right now – tonight – I want to share this song with you. Turn off the lights. Light a candle, or two, and listen to this.
Or just close your eyes and listen. That works too.
This song’s been with me for well over a decade. I don’t remember exactly where I first heard it, but I believe it must have been while I was living in New York and was just discovering and exploring this kind of music. I’m sure it’s not for everyone, but it works for me.
To me this is a safe and friendly song. It sits at home, resting in a favorite chair, remembering places it’s been. It doesn’t make your mind go wander, but it puts you in a little boat and lets you get carried away by the current. Fortunately, the river is old and respectable, and it knows to take good care of you.
You just lie back and look at the stars above as you float down the stream.
I don’t know if that’s how you’ll feel about it, but even then, take some time to sit down and listen. If nothing else, it’s good to take a break. When was the last time you stopped whatever else you were meant to be doing and just sat down to listen to a song?
It doesn’t even have to be this song.
